The oldest city in Central America: Granada, Nicaragua

Nicaragua is the biggest country in Central America. Bordering on Honduras in the North and Costa Rica in the South, in the South on Costa Rica, in to the West you will find on the impressive Pacific Ocean, and in the East you can enjoy the warm water of the Caribbean Sea.

“The most luxury hotel in Granada, La Gran Francia, is located cross of the Central Park in Granada. La Gran Francia is a splendid ancestral building whose existence historians argue dates back to the years immediately following the founding of Granada, in 1524. This architectural jewel was restored during the 1990's, recovering the majesty and splendor of its heyday and today housing Granada's finest hotel.”
